, not only into the country, but around it. i know you interviewed secretary kissinger on china. that is the number one fear. the number one fear is the stability, either inside or outside of china, will not be good. if the condition remains like it is today, not to mention there are a lot of flash points out there -- you heard the latest news about the china sea issues. there are a lot of issues going around. but assuming the leadership in china is able to manage all that and one would hope that they could and one would have high hopes that they would, this to growth will go on for two days to three decades. but the first statement you made in the show, i actually think that, as americans, i am always a positive thinker, as you know -- i think we're just going through relativity. we are relatively speaking not seeing what we have seen in the last 20 years are 25 years. going forward, there needs to be structural changes, reinventing ourselves, but you still -- china came from nothing. no wonder everybody has that little of hope. and they should. they deserve it. but on an absol

[laughter] so i will say a couple of nice words about tom, unnecessary though they might be. ever since she went from beirut to jerusalem decades ago, you have been the clearest thinker about where our country is going and where our world is going. he speaks with common sense. you may know hell rare reported common sense is, so that is why all of us think of tom as a national -- how rare reported common sense is, so we think of tom as a national treasure. >> walter, thank you. first of all, it is great to be here and wonderful to be here and it is a -- amazing what you have built here. thank you all for coming out at this early hour. i have a book coming out in september, written with a friend of mine. michael is a foreign policy professor at johns hopkins. what are to foreign policy guys doing writing about america? the book came about by accident. michael and i had been conversations about foreign policy, as my wife will attest, probabl
at the americans who are obviously leaving. so all day, this is going on, the ambassador had henry kissinger on his side. kissinger, graham martin and kissinger were kind of left over and they said if nixon were still in office we would be given general deng a good dose of vitamin b-52. but nixon got impeached and gerald ford want to wash his hands of it. they kept stalling. finally, the marines, the marine high commands, the secretary of defense and gerald ford convinced ambassador martin and kissinger it's time to get out. so, so begins the day, april 29, 1975 of just manic helicopters in, out. small arms fire the entire time either coming from snipers. they could see it. the msg's are up on the road. they're working 24 hours shoveling classified information into this furnace. they could see, take a look over the roof and see firefights between the nva who are still fighting. are still standing tall and funny. they're watching the firefights while their shoveling. they shall the $5 million in cash into the furnace of. american cash. who knows how many. i remember there was a story that steve schi

. >> as you know, henry kissinger and others argue that china has never been an international expansionist power. >> right. >> rose: it has not been an imperial power. it has been mostly about its own landmass and protecting itself. >> to which one answer might be "so why is it so big?" i mean, it is a vast territorial power which has, of course, significant ethnic minorities. they have large territories. >> rose: so you're suggesting that there is a history of chinese imperialism and any other historian who suggests that... >> no, no. i think that henry kissinger is clearly right. that it is not an eansionist power inhe sense thatfor exame, russia was. expanding constantly but i think... >> rose: and certain after the war. >> but i think that what you see already is a chinese strategic doctrine and kissinger, i think, would not dispute this which stakes an ambitious claim to a spheref influence as we rightly said and that would provoke conflict so i i think we're entering very very difficult times >> rose: well, your oxford colleague neil ferguson suggests that nationalistic forces will o

withdraw in afghanistan from nixon and kissinger's withdrawal from vietnam. that is not usually looked upon as a model of success. so explain what you meant. >> nixon and kissinger tried to extricate the united states from the war in vietnam. they knew they weren't going to win. they were going to lose. they tried to tiptoe away and leave the local parties to keep fighting by themselves. it almost worked. but after the u.s. got out, the whole house of cards came falling down because congress wouldn't let the government support saigon because the local parties weren't able to defend themselves and so forth. i think essentially, if the obama administration can tiptoe out of the ground combat in afghanistan while continuing to support the regime in kabul and continuing to bash the enemies and so forth, essentially you could get extrication even as essentially the war continues. that strikes me as the least bad option at this point. >> is that realistic? >> in your piece you say that the problem is we shouldn't be talking about withdrawal, that we should be doing it. indeed that's what nixon di
. henry kissinger went for his first trip to china through pakistan. pakistan facilitated the entire connection between china and the united states from 1969, when the first kissinger trip took place, in 1974, when the united states recognize the people's republic of china and the shanghai communiquÉ came about. so, it's one of those washington things, you know, something becomes a story. like the example, one candidate declares for six days, everybody is talking about that candidate and then something happens and that candidate story fizzled out. that's the way is. know, china and pakistan have been friends for a very long time. they have the historic outlook and, therefore, they understand the value of consistency. so whether our trade is up or down, whether military supplies up or down, et cetera, et cetera, the chinese have remained engaged with us and they have remained consistent friends and partners. and, therefore, slightly higher population rating, slightly up. significantly higher pipe liddy rating in pakistan. they are seen always has friends compared to americans who are
-- and the papers were leaked, we now know, with by daniel ellsberg to "the new york times." henry kissinger called ellsberg at the time the most dangerous man in america. they were published by "the new york times" after winning an epic first amendment battle in the supreme court, and after the times had published the pentagon papers the nixon administration prosecuted ellsberg under the espionage act. and you may remember that the trial was aborted in mid trial when judge matthew byrne down in los angeles discovered that nixon's plumbers unit had burglarized ellsberg's psychiatrist's office in order to find dirt on ellsberg. and the judge was so outraged about this governmental misduct that he dismissed the candidate. the government did not are the "the new york times" and, in fact, no publisher has ever been prosecuted under the espionage act, and i don't think that the news media could be prosecuted under the act. when it was proposed back in 1917, the congress rejected language that made it a crime to, quote, publish defense information in the very provision that senator feinstein relies on. t
gingrich and henry kissinger did their best to mute my influence on "the nightly news" because of the freedom and independence andy lack, who was then the president of nbc news, had given me. it's up there all the time, like gathering storm clouds. you do a terrific job of maintaining your independence, and i must say out of the murdoch scandal has come a reminder of the importance of a free and independent press. the journalists who have been dogging this story for the last six years worked for "the guardian," which is one of the great newspapers in the western world. "the guardian" is run by a public trust, set up by the founding family to make sure that "the guardian" would always be commercially and editorialally independent. wouldn't you have liked to have been in the editorial room at "the guardian," when they had the evidence, they would not have gone this way if they had not had the evidence. and they knew they were taking on the most powerful media baron in the world, the berlusconi of england and the united states, but they did it because they were independent. we hav
